Lighten Up Dark Woodwork


Many older homes have the details that make a difference, handsome wood molding surrounding windows, doors and other elements of a room. The downside is that the wood is often darkened by varnish that makes it look old. When we remodeled homes that molding was often the feature that sold a house because it added charm and character to the rooms. The trick was covering the dark stained with paint to make an impressive frame around the openings in a room. It’s not a quick and easy job, but it’s well worth doing.

Of the hundreds of job costs on DIYORNOT we’re not surprised that the cost to paint stained wood” is one of the most popular.
